It was an event that attracted people to the table to address the growing divide between the African American community  and police around the country.

The big disconnect appears to be trust and that’s exactly what Houstonians focused on for the big charity basketball game that simply expressed unity in our community.
Houston rappers and entertainers faced off against police officers in the sporting event that was designed to bring both sides to the table to show there is room for dialogue despite high profile clashes between the police and communities around the country.

Some of the people participating in the United We Stand game Sunday afternoon in Houston were Propain, DJ XO, Kirko Bangs, and many more.

The teams were sponsored by nightclub V-Live Houston and Straight Lace Entertainment.

By the way, Straight Lace Entertainment’s team won the basketball game.

The event was organized by Latasha Eleby of Houston and sponsored by Double Dose Entertainment!
